  • "Fun" night for me...

    Anyone who has been watching the news relating to Florida would know about Hurricane Katrina.

    Well, I finally just got power back (it went out at about eight last night; lucky one I am, as some people's power had been out since three in the afternoon). Tons of flooding in some areas, and overall not so fun. Not to mention I was looking out my window when I saw, first-hand, a powerline short-circuit and explode.

    There was even a highway overpass that collapsed; no one was under it thankfully.

    At least I have one thing to look forward to tonight: The Green Day concert is still on when I called today. Odd thing to be happy about through all o this, but need something to get my mind off the area (where trees, power lines, etc down and crap).

    Still though, I was in the area where the eye almost past through (eye went through Hialeah, a little ways from Mami). I'm safe, neighbors are safe, and I hope others in the are are okay.

        I'd be interested to know this as well... I always jump back when I am typing and the lightning strikes.

            Well... I'm back, again. It turns out when I came home at about midnight from the concert the power was out. It finally just came back (at about 1:50AM now). So, I had no power for... what looks to be about 40+ hours? I dunno...

            I have to now throw out most of my food (milk, eggs, etc.), there are places still with no gas around here... accidents all over the place due to the street/traffic lights still out and people flying right through them instead of treating it like a four-way stop. The heat and humidity didn't help either.

            I just hope the power will stay on this time...
